springs. frieda joins us next. caller: michael has to do with libya and what happened at the consulate and the deaths of the four americans. i understand that we knew within 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack our administration from e president down kept blaming it on video, which had nothing to do with the video. and they knew within 24 hours. and they set susan rice out on all of the talk shows to lie to all of the american people. i feel this was done because president obama is up for reelection and he said al-qaida was contained or done away with. and it has become all political. so he can re-win the election. host: there's a story in the new york times this morning -- saying there was a link between these attacks. she was the highest ranking obama administration officials. -- ross, from texas. on our line for democrats. caller: what i wanted to say, i wanted to complement the show. i have been watching for years. a longtime fan. one thing i wish you and every moderator would do with the beginning of every interview is ask whoever you are interviewing to what they work for and
in libya. >> it just perplexes me that this video done by one man from what i can tell and his son, crude, a parent, and tight islam is allowed to set off these demonstrations. you would have to look at the president's attempts to rebuild our relationship with the muslim world has not succeeded yet. we have to get to a point where not only we, but more importantly, the leaders in the muslim world say, this is a terrible film done by two americans. it does not represent the american people. it was not done by the american government. it simply is not an excuse to go on a rampage against american targets and americans. in other words, you cannot say that it was just this one man in california. it was created by the radical egyptian cleric who gave a fiery speech and a sermon about the film a few days before 9/11. by everyone else who went out and demonstrated. i think we have to respect the world's muslim community enough to say, friends, brothers, and sisters and faith, this is unacceptable behavior. >> washington journal continues. host: this week the inspector general released a this rep
in the arab world and egypt and libya -- off the route the middle east. if they want to deal with us, we have to be strong enough to say, hey, we will not put up with this and be prepared next time, especially on 911. it is mind-boggling to think he would not be prepared for this. it is in my opinion, there needs to be an apology. he spoke to the diplomats the day before. he went over to the state department. what is it he would say to them? it's a sorry i did not protect your people over there? it should have already been done. host: thank you. next is a call from new jersey. hello to raul. caller: hello. i would like to know, what is obama apologizing for? it came across to me as looking as week. furthermore, because there was -- it was the right thing for obama -- for romney to step in. the second thing i would like to know, does obama have an understanding of the magnitude of what he has gotten himself into? he has no sense of purpose, no sense of direction. it is time for obama to go. thank you. host: thank you, raul. next is a call from fort worth, texas. this is fell, a republican. cal
act, he's gone into libya and got qaddafi, he got bin laden, he's killed more al-qaeda leaders than the previous president did, he's been very good on national security which is often perceived as a weak part for liberals, so i don't think he's governed as a far left liberal and of course, bill clinton did what's known as try ang a -- triangulation, worked with republicans, had a good working relationship with newt gingrich and was considered a moderate democrat. so often the word liberal is anybody who is not a conservative but these presidents, the last two democratic presidents, i believe have governedd as gobbed as moderates and that's what you need to do to get the swath of the eelectric toreat on your -- electorate on your side. although bush had neocons around him and moved to the right. generally if you want to be a successful governor and i use the word governor in a broader sense you want to appeal to the broader swath of the electorate and govern it as a ken terrorist, not as a lefty or righty. >> host: you similar rise dollars it with these questions, 10, how liberal are
in libya to probe the deaths of americans at the embassy. secretary of state hillary clinton said thursday -- also, in overseas news, this from the wall street journal, that the u.s. will curb its joint afghan operation. accompanying that story is a graphic showing some of the attacks from afghan forces that are working with the u.s. the headline is "and friendly friendly attacks." 51 deaths so far this year. and on mitt romney's comments. we are talking to republicans in this first segment. ray is from buffalo, new york. caller: good morning. i believe c-span has to do something. i have been with c-span 20 years listening. this is the first time i have called. on the republican line is democrats and on our independent line is democrats. the individual who said he was a teamster, is not a republican. he is worried about his penchant. what are you supposed to do as an american, pay for his pension? host: what about the state of the romney campaign? caller: i think the press is in full press motta tried to destroy romney. just the fact we have this subject this morning is indicative of this,
haze has this editorial. talking about the attacks and libya. joe is on the phone on the republican line. our third party is still relevant? caller: no. ross perot had a wonderful opportunity to open up people's mines and he talked about things. the problem with that is he is a billionaire just like everybody else. it was a business decision. at the end of the day he is back to eric -- back to making money or the rest of us have to decide whether we can pay house note, carnot, pay for our kid's education just to get through the day. if he were serious about a third party, then he should have stayed there to have a third party. i voted the man not the party. when i look at what mr. romney is doing and mr. ryan is doing as opposed to what i already know about president obama, i am proud of him -- the things he is talking about as opposed to what they are talking about is about the rich getting richer as opposed to all of us being in this together. i do not have a problem paying more tax to help somebody out right now. i got where i was because of what people did prior to me. if a demo
